The TubeWriter™ 360 tube labeling machine cuts preparation time for large-scale tube labeling work, ensures sample integrity at low temperatures and requires no learning curve.
Any Tube, Any Vial, Any Size: The TubeWriter™ 360 prints on anything that will fit under the inkjet printhead including the side or top of any tube, vial, histology cassette, microscope slide, cryovial, and more. Never go back to messy handwriting or sticky lab labels again.
Barcode Printing = Positive ID: Barcode standards such as Data Matrix, Linear, 2D, Code 128, Code 39 are all possible using the TubeWriter™ 360 tube labeling machine and system. This enhanced capability allows you to integrate your barcode scanners to read the tubes and record data into your systems. Rather than worrying about reading text, take your samples and start scanning them. Positive identification means no human errors during the tube labeling process.
Industrial Inkjet Technology: TubeWriter™ 360 employs an ink-delivery system used in over a quarter of a million systems world-wide. The inkjet technology has been tested and re-tested in harsh industrial conditions.
LIMS or Excel Integration: Using the TubeWriter™ 360 tube labeling system is as easy as opening excel and pressing print. TubeWriter™ 360 software receives text from excel to be printed onto your labware. Confirm each line of print and number of tubes/vials to be printed and you are ready to go.
